LIPO-LIGHT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is suitable for Lipo-Light treatment?
Lipo-Light is suitable for most people over the age of 18 years but, as with many treatments, there are some contraindications. Anyone with the following conditions would not be suitable for this treatment:
• Persons under 18 years old
• Pregnancy and breastfeeding
• Kidney/liver disease unless controlled
• Cancer unless in remission
• Heart disease/Heart Pacemaker
• Medical oedema
• Auto Immune disease unless controlled
• Metal pins or plates
• Thyroid problems unless controlled
• Urine infection
Is there anyone Lipo-Light is not suitable for?
Lipo-Light may not be as effective for men if they have very hard belly fat cells that have been stored for many years. Also, if you have a BMI of less than 18.5, you would be classed as underweight and your level of body fat would be too low for Lipo-Light treatment.
Do not drink tea, coffee or alcohol before or after treatment and drink plenty of water after treatment. Do not eat for at least 2 hours before or after treatment.
In order for the released fat to be burned off and not re-stored in the body, it is essential that clients are able to exercise for 30 minutes following each treatment.
How long do treatments last?
Treatments take 30 minutes. However, the first appointment will be longer to allow for completion of medical forms and measuring.
How many treatments will I need?
Results can usually be seen after one treatment. However, for maximum results, a course of 8-10 treatments is recommended. These are usually taken twice per week over a 4-5 week period.
I have several areas from which I wish to remove fat - can I do them all at once?
No. With Lipo-Light you want to target specific areas such as belly fat, arms etc for your sessions. You will have more effective results this way as we can target the proper lymphatic elimination areas and produce better fat loss results. Once you complete an area, you may do additional courses to reduce excess fat in other areas.
Will it work on me?
Only 3% of people treated have shown minimal results – you can expect to lose 2 cm to 6 cm over the 8-10 treatments programme.
Are there any risks involved and does it hurt?
There are no risks and it does not hurt.
Is it effective after having a child?
Lipo-Light is very effective on new mums who are not breastfeeding.
What are the advantages over laser?
It is a safe and effective treatment. There is no danger to the eyes or other organs. Laser system is more of direct beam. The LED beam refracts therefore covers a greater area. Results are greatly improved.
Is maintenance required?
This is optional dependant on your size and the results achieved. The results are permanent but many clients like to have top-up sessions every month or so.
How long before I see results?
The inch loss can be seen immediately but further inch loss can occur during the day.
What does it feel like?
The LED pads get warm during the treatment. Most clients find it a very relaxing and soothing experience.
Can I bring my children with me when I have my treatment?
Many of our clients are new mums and we are a child-friendly salon. You are more than welcome to bring your baby along with you; just let us know beforehand so that we can arrange for a travel cot to be set up in the treatment room. Please note that due to Health & Safety requirements, infants need to remain in the travel cot during your appointment so this option is only suitable for babies and young toddlers.
FINE-LIGHT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Who is suitable for Fine-Light treatment?
Fine-Light is suitable for all skin types and colours. However, if you have epilepsy you would not be suitable to use Fine-Light and if you are pregnant or taking medication (such as Tetracycline) which causes light sensitivity, you should consult your physician before using Fine-Light. Also, if you are using a thyroid medication or have a thyroid condition, do not use the Fine-Light over the thyroid gland. The main pre-requisite is that the skin is clean to allow for effective light transmission. Your therapist will therefore cleanse your face before the mask is applied. Products containing Vitamin A (such as Retin-A) should only be used after using Fine-Light as these products may block the LED lights from penetrating the skin.
What types of results do people see with this form of treatment?
The first and most reported results happen in the area of fine lines, wrinkles, reduced pore size and skin becoming softer, smoother and less dry. Then after continued usage our customers report that looser skin begins to firm up. Age spots and hyper-pigmentation can also be improved but generally take a much longer time.
How long do treatments take?
The Fine-Light mask is worn for 20 minutes but before the mask is fitted, clients will receive a 10 minute facial to prepare the skin for treatment.
How long will it take to see results?
For best results, a course of 8-10 treatments is recommended and each person responds at different speeds to the Fine-Light System. Some much quicker than others, depending on their current physical condition, age, skin condition, diet, alcohol consumption, smoking habits etc. That said, most people see results in 4 to 8 weeks, but many see results in as short as 1 to 3 weeks. A few people will take as long as 9 to 11 weeks, but this is more unusual. Some actually see results overnight!
What is photo rejuvenation or LED light therapy and how does it work?
It is the same process as photosynthesis in plants. Exact wavelengths of light emitted from LED’s stimulate and energize cellular activity, which in turn creates Collagen and Elastin for Anti-Aging benefits.
Is Photo rejuvenation or LED Light therapy safe?
Yes, it is safe and completely non-invasive. It has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, medical spas, the offices of estheticians and Dermatologists and consumers around the world.
Is there any scientific proof of rejuvenation or LED light therapy?
Unlike many devices on the market today, LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of Universities, Medical Labs and most importantly NASA. There have actually been over 2000 reports and documents written on this technology.
''I lay down for half an hour during which I chatted with Debbie (she was very welcoming and friendly) and when I stood back up again I was thinner……..amazing!! I have lost 7.5 cm around my thigh area in just three sessions. I would highly recommend (and I have those stubborn fatty areas too so I was surprised to see the results :-) I will definitely be returning ready for that bikini body! Thanks Debbie.''

"From Bingo Wings to Sparrow Wings in just 3 sessions! Like most people, I was sceptical and thought how on earth can this get rid of my flabby bits, surely only surgery can do that? The special deal was such a bargain that I decided to try it out, along with the facial treatment. The discrete location in the beautiful countryside was an added bonus, as was the ample parking in the grounds. The treatment room is very cosy and Debbie was very welcoming and explained the process thoroughly and checked again to make sure I was suitable for treatment. Four separate measurements were taken on my upper arm and marked so that the measurement would be taken on the same spot after the 30 minutes session. Pads were placed on my underarm lymph nodes and 3 pads were spaced around the arm, a velcro strap holding them comfortably in place. I was covered with fleecy blankets and felt a lovely warmth as the pads worked their magic. Whilst my arms were melting away, I had a lovely relaxing aromatherapy facial and then had the Fine-Light mask fitted and drifted away for the rest of the session. I had 2 further sessions and at the end found I had lost an amazing 7.5 cms over the 4 measurements - the largest single loss was 2.5 cm (a whole inch!) Not only that, they look and feel firmer too. I will certainly book a complete course now that I have seen such good results over what is effectively a small target area - and perhaps try the wobbly inner thighs next time. Thanks for your inspirational and motivating healthy eating ideas too.”
"I was very happy with the Lipo-Light treatment. The tops of my legs are now a lot slimmer in an area where it is very difficult to shift the inches. It definitely gave me a kickstart into improving the shape of my legs."
"Ever since I was a teenager I had been very conscious about the size of my thighs, naturally pear shaped, I worked hard on my fitness to decrease their size but I still had remaining cellulite and inches. Then I saw Lipo-Light and thought that I’d give it a try, why not, I’d tried everything else! I arranged three sessions with Debbie for the Lipo-Light treatment on my thighs and also for a couple of Fine-Light facials which I had heard were very relaxing. The treatment is non-invasive and very warming. The facial was, indeed, relaxing; I actually fell asleep during it! Debbie measured my thighs before my first treatment and then after the last one and I had lost 7 centimetres! My thighs definitely felt smoother and the cellulite had reduced. It’s been 3 months since the treatment and I have kept these centimetres off and in fact have lost more since. So, thank you Debbie for a fabulous treatment in sumptuous surroundings.”

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making me feel so much better about myself. When I first came to see you I was really depressed about my body, particularly my tummy area, but after having the course of Lipo-Light treatment, I can happily say that I am feeling much more confident and happy about my body and am motivated to keep exercising and eating healthily so that I maintain my fantastic inch loss. I really looked forward to my treatments each week and will certainly be recommending you to all my friends."
"Marvellous!! I finally got rid of that belly fat ... never thought it would go but thanks to Lipo-Light it has! Thanks Debbie."
